What if I have a question about the app?

If you need help with something in the Keeper app, you should email That’ll give you the fastest response time (usually within one business day)!

Our accountants aren’t tech support experts, but they are tax experts. That’s why you should use this tool to send them questions about your unique tax situation: write-offs, filing, tax forms, and more! They can even cover other finance topics, like small business loans.

What if I want to know how much I’ll owe in taxes?

We’ve actually got some free calculators to help you with this! If you want to estimate your tax bill from freelancing, check out our 1099 tax calculator.

If you think you should be paying quarterly taxes, use our quarterly tax calculator to figure out how much your payments should be (or if you should even make them).

Finally, our self-employment tax rate calculator will tell you what percentage of your 1099 income you should set aside for taxes.
